I decided to try this place based on the reviews and I'm glad I did! I had a 90 minute therapeutic (deep, deep, deep) massage with a gentleman (I think his name was Juan but I'm sorry that I can't say for sure). Wow! I get massages regularly and I will say this was one of the best ever. Definitely... More

I visited the spa with some friends on a girl trip. It was absolutely wonderful. I had the Mayan Goddess Facial. It was outstanding. Each of us were impressed with our massages/facials. The staff were all courteous, excellent service, and everyone was timely. The atmosphere couldn't have been more relaxing. This was perfect for our stress free trip. Would highly... More

My husband surprised me with a get away for Valentine's week. Our 1st vacation without the kids. We decided to spend one full day just relaxing at Budha Gardens Spa. My husband got the deep tissue massage which he said was amazing. He said it was one of the best he had ever had, with just enough pressure to feel... More

We've been coming to Akumal annually for a decade and Budha Gardens Spa is a regular feature of our time here - we usually book 3 massages each over the course of a week. The spa is an oasis just steps from the beach, nicely landscaped with comfortable, private treatment rooms. This year, we had Juan, Yvette and Diana -... More

Service was good and Diana was really kind and servicial. The facility was quite clean but I expected I bit more in regards of the quality of the products or techniques they offer for such an expensive price. Also, the exchange rate is not fair but that happens in the whole town and no one takes credit cards, so rather... More

My wife and I enjoyed very nice massages. The atmosphere is calming and the facilities are immaculate. I favor a deep tissue massage or at least a therapist who feels out where work is needed and digs in. I didn't get that, but in all fairness, I did not specifically ask for a deep tissue massage and did not discuss... More

This was relatively quirky to book. My email to their contact of their website was returned undeliverable. When I arrived on site, there was a sign that said "check back in one hour". Kind of difficult to tell when that hour started. However, I did go back later and was able to get an appt for the next afternoon. The... More

After all that snorkeling swimming walking biking... More
